Experience Summer With All Six Senses

Jul 7, 2017 | JVP's Blog

Summer is a feast for the senses. I make it a point to slow down to savor the feel of the sun on my face, the taste of summer fruits and vegetables from my garden, the sound of the birds and the surf on the beach, the sight and smell of the flowers blooming in my garden. During this time, I feel like my 6th sense is extra sharp as well.

Are you taking the time to tune into your natural intuitive gifts?

These abilities are unique – just like you are – and they manifest themselves in various ways. You’ve probably heard the term clairvoyance, which has to do with visual impressions, but there are other types of sensitivity, which involve hearing, sensing or feeling.

Which of “the Clairs” do you possess?

clairvoyance (clear seeing)

You may see things – images in your mind that have special significance, visual impressions associated with other people, colors, auras or visions that come in dreams, or when you’re awake.

clairaudience (clear hearing)

Your special ability manifests itself audibly – usually inside your mind. For most people, the messages they receive are telepathic, meaning that spirits will converse with you through thoughts.

clairsentience (clear feeling)

Do you feel the emotions and feelings of people, animals, spirits, and places? Then you have the gift of clairsentience, and are probably an empathy as well.

claircognizance (clear knowing)

The ability to ‘just know’ things is w powerful gift. You might wonder where this information has come from, but with practice and experience, you’ll learn to trust your “inner knowing.”


Test Your Intuition:

You might have seen this quiz earlier this year – even if you’ve taken it before, I urge you to revisit it and see what new insights you come up with!

Photographs are an excellent tool for practicing and strengthening the “clairs.” Take a look at these photos, and jot down what you see, hear, feel and know about the people, places and animals depicted. Slightly un-focus your eyes and gaze deeper, beyond the images, imagine yourself going inside the photo, and seeing it from the inside out. Don’t look at my answers until you’re done writing down your own impressions.








I hope you had fun with this exercise and let your intuition run wild! Here’s what I can tell you about each photo. Were you close?

1) Magic and Mystery! I took that photo last year on a Mediumship Cruise to Tahiti. It was a magical morning where we experienced a gorgeous rainbow.  I can still feel the mystical energy of Tahiti resonating in this photo.

2) Danger and Warning! This photo was taken about 4 years ago while a massive fire raged in the area. Poinsettia Lane in Carlsbad was at the center of the fire, and although flames are not visible here, you might feel the oppressive heat and the sense of danger and destruction.

3) I saw this little doggie at Starbucks yesterday. I sense a yellow and red aura around him – telling me that he is a busy, active little dog, but tends to overthink. I know that he feels ignored and impatient at this moment, and I sense a blockage that indicates that he has a bit of indigestion or some kind of stomach problem.  He also had another owner previously, who he misses.

4) This photo was taken 4 years ago. The young man in the photo is charming, but tends to be impatient and judgmental. He is on a good path, and has many options for a successful career. The dog in this picture, a Jack Russell named Eddie, is now deceased. He lived a long happy life, and had a strong bond with the young man since they grew up together.

How did you do? If you enjoyed flexing your psychic muscles, I invite you to practice throughout the day, picking up energy and impressions from the people, places and animals that you come in contact with.

If you’re as fascinated as I am by the Clairs, check out my course Opening Your Psychic Portals. I created it earlier this year, and I’ve kept the price extra low so more of my students can benefit from the 8 lessons, videos, exercises and guided meditations.  That window is closing – the price will be going up in just a few days, so take this opportunity to learn something new this summer – and identify and enhance your own unique psychic gifts!
